Every now and then I like to write about our bathroom. Does anyone care? I don’t know, but here I go again.
When I bought this house in 2004, the bathroom looked like this:
You are probably wondering why I bought a place with a bathroom like this. Well, everything worked and it was the best Rigby and I could afford. Plus, I had more motivation back then to conquer projects I had no business attempting.
In 2009, Henry tore out the nasty shower insert and we paid someone to tile it and put in a new window. I thought a window lurkers couldn’t see through was a nice touch.
Seven months later, I sent H and the boys to stay with Big H and Mogie so I could paint those awful, mint green, plastic tiles. I installed a new medicine cabinet and towel racks.
This week, I tiled the floor. As sweet as the faux marble linoleum-like, stick-em tiles were, I wanted something different. I had been dreaming of pebble tiles. I found them in Bozeman a few years ago for $17 per 12X12 tile. Even though our bathroom is not quite 25 square feet, it was pricey.
Last week I found them online for $9.99/square foot with free shipping. I like to shop local, but…..
One day I’ll have my own bathroom. Anyone who doesn’t hit the bowl every time they pee, will be forbidden from entry. Until then, I am happy to share this much improved bathroom with my family.
